The dragon binds his mate to him with a ritual that shows Hope her true nature in this humorous erotic romance.
Four Boundless Stars
I can never get enough shape shifters, and now I want more dragons! I enjoyed this book and feel it leads to a fun series. I almost wanted to put it down during the mating ritual; it was a little out there, but I’m glad I pushed through it. Stealing Hope definitely has erotic parts to it, that’s for sure.
The story starts with Hope alone in the woods hunting, when Ari is drawn to her just in time to rescue her from the “cats.” He and his brother take care of her, and her wounds while she rest; during this time, Hope and Ari are undeniably drawn towards each other. Ari’s desires lead to his changing her into a dragon shifter; that’s where it gets a little weird. Without giving a lot away, I will end it with; Ari and his brothers take Hope home and meet her family, and more mystery arises.
There’s a LOT of unanswered questions with the end of this book. It’s ok as a stand-alone novel, but I have a feeling it will be better when followed with the next book of the series. I see it going much like Feehan’s Dark Series, where each book focuses on a different family member finding their mates, while answering the unanswered questions from the previous book.
I would have enjoyed this book not leaving as many unanswered questions as it did, just a little more closure to Hope and Ari’s story. With that said, I still enjoyed this book and I’m rating this book with 4 Boundless stars.
